Knightscope Files Lawsuit on Capybara Research for Short and Distort Practices (Graphic: Business Wire)

On December 20, 2023, Knightscope filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York against Capybara Research, a short selling research firm created in July 2023 that authors “short reports” on various publicly traded companies, including Knightscope. Capybara anonymously publishes its reports to its Twitter account and website, and frequently posts inaccurate and misleading information with the intention to antagonize our retail investment community and embarrass the Company.

Today, after weeks of investigatory work by legal counsel as well as cooperation of third parties, the Company wishes to announce that the attorneys have been successful in identifying the person responsible for the malicious article and are now talking all steps necessary to prosecute the lawsuit in the name of the individual, as well as his address, and to serve that individual.

Knightscope also sued the social media news outlet Benzinga for republishing, and continuing to republish the Capybara research and other false reports that continue to harm the retail investment community. "We are committed to legally pursuing all short and distort campaigns against the company as well as all media outlets that irresponsibly reported the false, misleading and defaming Capybara Report," stated William Santana Li, chairman and CEO, Knightscope, Inc.

The company had previously announced that it retained known dilution funder combatant Mark R. Basile, Esq, and his Securities and RICO litigation firm, The Basile Law Firm P.C., to assist the company in investigating and prosecuting all claims in defense of the Company and its retail investors.

About The Basile Law Firm P.C.

Mr. Basile, a former law professor, has battled dilution funding for the last 14 years. In 2021, his firm secured a landmark decision against a dilution funder that has set the standard to save hundreds of public companies' tens of millions of dollars. Since that decision, his firm has vacated several federal trial court judgments and consequently many of the dilution funders have not filed suits against public companies in the last 18 months. His firm is also pursuing several RICO actions against known dilution funders for the collection of unlawful debt and because of his actions, the Southern District of New York recently denied a toxic dilution funders’ motion to dismiss RICO claims. The firm has also published articles and advice for companies that believe they may be victims of unlawful dilution, counterfeit shares and market manipulation by brokers, investment relation firms and short-sellers, a summary of which can be found at:
